HOPE Services Hawaii, Inc - Non-Profit Organization

Below is the information for HOPE Services Hawaii, Inc, a Non-Profit Organization in Hilo HI :
Details: HOPE Services Hawaii Inc. is a statewide non-profit that provides an array of services to the homeless of Hawaii. These services include emergency and transitional housing 365 days a year, in addition to core services such as homeless outreach and supportive housing. In 2010, there was increased focus on homeless prevention and rapid re-housing due to a three year grant received through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. This grant, in addition to continued funding for our supportive housing and other programs allowed HOPE to provide assistance to eligible households to prevent homelessness or alleviate homeless situations through permanent housing. Between July 2012 and June 2013, HOPE provided support and/or housing services to more than 4,000 people islandwide. These outcomes are attributed to the dedication of HOPE staff and their belief in the mission to “bring to life gospel values of justice, love, compassion and hope through service, empowerment and advocacy.”
